Celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom (left) held a press conference in Los Angeles on Monday (August 7) to address Usher’s recent flood of lawsuits alleging he had infected multiple people with an STD.

One of the plaintiffs, 21-year-old Quantasia Sharpton, said Usher picked her out of a crowd during a concert on her 19th birthday and later had sex with her, but she admits at that time she did not test positive for herpes.

Bloom explained all three of her clients, including one man, Wow, have suffered severe emotional distress, depression and anxiety. She alleges Usher failed to inform them he was infected with herpes.
